Shopping Templates — Ever Tried One for Finding Time?

Shopping templates help!

Shopping templates are powerful time-savers that increase your efficiency when you’re in a hurry — or anytime.

As I write this morning I’m guessing that many of you, like me, do your food shopping at least weekly.

So, how often do you get home, unpack your bags, and realize that you’ve forgotten something?

It’s so frustrating — and so unnecessary!

Shopping templates really help.

I’ve written about templates here in the past. They are time tools that streamline tons of tasks. And shopping is an excellent example of a chore that you can transform for yourself, just by using a template.

Think about it… about 80% of your shopping list is probably made up of items that you always want to have on hand. So, setting yourself up with a template for those items really makes all the sense in the world.

Imagine the time you’ll save.

Computers are well-suited to the creation of shopping templates. Once you’ve created your template it’s easily reproduced, and easily adapted as your needs change.

Use your template to review what you have, check off what you need. And then use it at the store to make sure you don’t miss anything!

Here are a couple of suggestions:

  • Your template works best if you set it up so that it matches the layout of the store where you usually shop. So, if you come to the produce section first when you enter the store, put fruits and vegetables at the top of your template.
  • And don’t forget to leave plenty of space for extra items that you need infrequently, or for a special recipe.

Start small, use your template, and tweak it as you go along.

You’ll be amazed at the time that you’ll save. And you’ll really love having the time that you’ll find!
